Highlight: Installation of a 230kV Shunt Reactor and associated equipment to improve the reliability of the system.
The dry-type Reactor was the first installation of its kind for PSEG. Along with the reactor, VPG built a new bus section and breaker to complete the full installation of a new 230KV bay. On the controls side, VPG integrated the new control racks into the existing relay system plus performed the pulling and termination of all cables to the new equipment. Also included in this scope was the extensive addition and modification to the ground grid, as well as the installation of three (3) dual tap CTs and one (1) neutral CT; two (2) lightning masts and two (2) overhead static wires.
